What Happens When You Cancel Canva Pro

Switching to digital design can have a significant impact, but there may be instances where certain elements no longer meet your needs. An example of this is cancelling a subscription to Canva Pro. In this blog post, we will guide you through the process of what occurs when you decide to cancel your Canva Pro subscription.

Access to Pro Features

Firstly, when you cancel your Canva Pro subscription, you will lose access to all the Pro-level features. However, you will still have access to your account and the free features provided by Canva. This includes a vast array of free templates, photo editing tools, and basic design elements.

Your Designs

Another common concern is the loss of designs created during the subscription period. The good news is that you won’t lose any of your designs. Even after you cancel your subscription, you can access and edit all your designs. However, Pro elements within those designs will be watermarked, and you would need to pay for these elements if you want to use them in new designs.


When it comes to billing, once you cancel your subscription, you won’t be charged moving forward. The cancellation stops the next scheduled payment. But bear in mind, there are no refunds for the billing period in which you cancel.

How to Cancel Canva Pro

Now that we know what happens when we cancel the Canva Pro subscription, let’s take a quick look at how to cancel it:

Step 1: Click on the account button located on the top-right corner of the page.

Step 2: Click on the “Billing & Teams” option.

Step 3: Then click on “Billing.”

Step 4: Here, you can click on “Cancel subscription.”


While Canva Pro offers a host of benefits, it may not be for everyone. Make sure you understand what you lose access to before you cancel. Remember, all your designs stay with you, and you still have access to a wealth of free tools and elements. If you ever decide to go Pro again, Canva will always be there to welcome you back.
